100% real

My sister and I are vacationing along the Pacific coast in Costa Rica. Out of the corner of my eye a glowing bright, bright orange shape appeared.

Approaching out from the north sky, slowly, silently gliding to the west. Changing from a large watermelon circle to a star-like size, and repeating from larger to smaller, then instantly disappearing directly out to the west.

I have never, in my life witnessed such a sight. I have alway believed in such events but this is my first sighting that I feel was 100% legit. I went to google "UFO sightings in Costa Rica" with surprise to see numerous video recording the exact same image I witnessed. I was stunned.

I wish I could have captured this event. I could not take my eyes off what I was seeing to grab my phone to even find the camera.

This morning, I also saw 4 helicopters along the coast, unlike tourism helicopters......Completely breath taking.
